Your Articles for Deletion nominations[edit]

G'day, this is just to let you know that there is a set procedure for creating Article for Deletion discussions, which you can easily find by typing WP:AfD in the search box on the left of the page. Instructions there will tell you how to go about it. The fact that you haven't used the proper Templates means basically that nobody knows the discussions exist, otherwise they would have been closed days ago. More specifically, if you think an article's content needs to be merged, there's no need to even open an AfD discussion; you can either post a comment on the article's Talk page to discuss it, or be bold and just go ahead and do the merging yourself. Typing WP:MERGE in the search box will get you to a page that tells you how to do that. If the two dinosaur names are typos, they should be redirected instead of deleted; type WP:REDIRECT to get you to a page that tells you how to do that.

April 2014[edit]

Information icon Hello, I'm Chris troutman. I noticed that you made a change to an article, Propaganda, but you didn't provide a reliable source. It's been removed for now, but if you'd like to include a citation and re-add it, please do so! If you need guidance on referencing, please see the referencing for beginners tutorial, or if you think I made a mistake, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thank you.

Teahouse logo
Hello! Extrapolaris, I noticed your article was declined at Articles for Creation, and that can be disappointing. If you are wondering or curious about why your article submission was declined please post a question at the Articles for creation help desk. If you have any other questions about your editing experience, we'd love to help you at the Teahouse, a friendly space on Wikipedia where experienced editors lend a hand to help new editors like yourself! See you there! JustBerry (talk) 21:34, 21 May 2014 (UTC)

MfD nomination of Draft:Cuba and weapons of mass destruction[edit]

Draft:Cuba and weapons of mass destruction, a page you substantially contributed to, has been nominated for deletion. Your opinions on the matter are welcome; please participate in the discussion by adding your comments at Wikipedia:Miscellany for deletion/Draft:Cuba and weapons of mass destruction and please be sure to sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~). You are free to edit the content of Draft:Cuba and weapons of mass destruction during the discussion but should not remove the miscellany for deletion template from the top of the page; such a removal will not end the deletion discussion. Thank you. JustBerry (talk) 21:34, 21 May 2014 (UTC)

Edit summaries[edit]

Hi, this was probably just a slip-up when you changed your mind, but you left an edit summary which did not refer to deletion when tagging Tilgate Formation for proposed deletion. This requirement at WP:PROD#Nominating is only fair to other editors who may have the page on their watchlist.

I hope this is not a habitual oversight, but I just noticed that you left another edit summary "added flags" for an edit in which you not only did that but also deleted several table entries at List of stratigraphic units... Your deletions may well be justified, but please be open about the changes that you are making.

Hope this helps, – Fayenatic London 10:26, 26 May 2014 (UTC)

A page you started (Nannocetus) has been reviewed![edit]

Thanks for creating Nannocetus, Extrapolaris!

Wikipedia editor Animalparty just reviewed your page, and wrote this note for you:

Please consider expanding this stub (and other recent paleo whale articles) with morphological descriptions to supplement the taxonomy/nomenclature coverage (which is rather esoteric for most readers). don't forget WP:MTAU!

To reply, leave a comment on Animalparty's talk page.

Learn more about page curation.

August 2014[edit]

Information icon Welcome to Wikipedia. It appears that you have added a link to an image on an external website to Propaganda, likely in an attempt to display that image on the page. For technical and policy reasons, it is not possible to use images from external websites on Wikipedia. If the image meets Wikipedia's image use policy, consider uploading it to Wikipedia yourself or request an upload. See the image tutorial to learn about wiki syntax used for images. Thank you.

Orphaned non-free image File:"Let's Drive the US Imperialists Out and Reunify the Homeland!.jpg[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:"Let's Drive the US Imperialists Out and Reunify the Homeland!.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Stefan2 (talk) 10:44, 11 August 2014 (UTC)

File source problem with File:Kwangmyongsong 3-2.jpg[edit]

Thank you for uploading File:Kwangmyongsong 3-2.jpg. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, please add a link to the page from which it was taken, together with a brief restatement of the website's terms of use of its content. If the original copyright holder is a party unaffiliated with the website, that author should also be credited. Please add this information by editing the image description page.

If the necessary information is not added within the next days, the image will be deleted. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem.

Please refer to the image use policy to learn what images you can or cannot upload on Wikipedia. Please also check any other files you have uploaded to make sure they are correctly tagged. Here is a list of your uploads. If you have any questions or are in need of assistance please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Eeekster (talk) 20:48, 15 August 2014 (UTC)

Possibly unfree File:Kwangmyongsong 2.jpg[edit]

A file that you uploaded or altered, File:Kwangmyongsong 2.jpg, has been listed at Wikipedia:Possibly unfree files because its copyright status is unclear or disputed. If the file's copyright status cannot be verified, it may be deleted. You may find more information on the file description page. You are welcome to add comments to its entry at the discussion if you object to the listing for any reason. Thank you. --benlisquareTCE 03:28, 16 August 2014 (UTC)

File permission problem with File:Dusisiren83041s.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:Dusisiren83041s.jpg. I noticed that while you provided a valid copyright licensing tag, there is no proof that the creator of the file has agreed to release it under the given license.

If you are the copyright holder for this media entirely yourself but have previously published it elsewhere (especially online), please either

  • make a note permitting reuse under the CC-BY-SA or another acceptable free license (see this list) at the site of the original publication; or
  • Send an email from an address associated with the original publication to permissions-en@wikimedia.org, stating your ownership of the material and your intention to publish it under a free license. You can find a sample permission letter here. If you take this step, add {{OTRS pending}} to the file description page to prevent premature deletion.

If you did not create it entirely yourself, please ask the person who created the file to take one of the two steps listed above, or if the owner of the file has already given their permission to you via email, please forward that email to permissions-en@wikimedia.org.

If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Non-free content, use a tag such as {{non-free fair use}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:File copyright tags#Fair use, and add a rationale justifying the file's use on the article or articles where it is included. See Wikipedia:File copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have provided evidence that their copyright owners have agreed to license their works under the tags you supplied, too. You can find a list of files you have created in your upload log. Files lacking evidence of permission may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. You may wish to read the Wikipedia's image use policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 14:55, 16 August 2014 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of 2015 in paleontology[edit]

Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia. Although everyone is welcome to contribute to Wikipedia, introducing inappropriate pages, such as 2015 in paleontology, is not in accordance with our policies.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Ahecht (TALK
